I am an active single woman, raised in Oregon and Vermont, but have been in New Hampshire near many of my relatives since 1985. Previous careers include Spanish teacher and radiation safety technician. I still work part-time at a radiation safety company, calibrating radiation detection instrumentation for universities, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, etc. I have been an Airbnb host since 2012 and more recently have been "host mother" for several Chinese high school students during the school year.

I inherited this large country home in 2003 with my husband; he passed away in 2011. In 2013 I became engaged to Peter Mason, a friend from my UU church, who is an interesting and caring partner in my home-based endeavors Family and friends are very important to us and this house is often the meeting place -- we love having company! As a country-lover I am glad my house is adjacent to the Bellamy Wildlife Management Area, a 400+ acre area where we walk the many trails, go X-country skiing and snowshoeing. We go to Portsmouth for the plays, concerts, parks, good restaurants, nightlife and interesting art galleries (only 10 miles away) and walk the beaches with friends often (the ocean is 12 miles away). I am a birder (well, I try; mostly I bird by ear) and find great birding both here on the coast as well as in the White Mountains, only 60 miles away to the NW. I have always loved to garden, and have a vegetable garden every year. The perennial flowerbeds which were my mother-in-law's give me great joy, though I do struggle with the upkeep! I enjoy sharing my space with interesting people!
